Irritation and pain after bowel movement

Hi there I've had ibs on and off past 10 years, I don't understand anymore I've been going to toilet regularly every morning 1_2_3 times so not constipation or diorrhea,then I start feel irritation and pain coming from the rectum,this will last all day I'm starting to feel so tired and depression has set in now, just wondering what I can do to help this cycle stop,feeling really anxious to, don't know if it's what I'm eating or is it stress related, any help greatly appreciated thanks

Have you had this checked out by your doctor? Have you looked into parasites as a potential cause? Worms can cause discomfort in the rectum.

You may find your IBS is caused by several triggers. You could have a look at this post I wrote on the subject for ideas: sickofibs.com/ibs-triggers/...

To help your mood without taking antidepressants there are plant-based over the counter tablets (usually containg valerian) that I found very helpful to get through certain difficult times.

I also found seeing a Reiki (energy) therapist helped me to relax and offload stress.

Could you have internal piles? They might get irritated each time you go!
